From our friends at the Charlotte Motor Speedway : Country music star and double-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Josh Turner will perform a pre-race concert before the green flag waves on the 29th annual NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 18 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, replacing Billy Currington, who was originally scheduled to perform.

“Due to Currington’s recent indictment, we elected to change our act for the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race,” said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway.  “Josh Turner is a native of the Carolinas with six No. 1 hits to his credit, and we know he’ll put on a fantastic show for our fans and sponsors on race weekend.”

Billy Currington was indicted in Chatham County, Ga. on charges of making terroristic threats and abuse of an elder person. Both charges stem from an incident that allegedly occurred on his boat on April 15.
